Prince Harry finds an unlikely defender in TV host Piers Morgan, who said the royal has “earned” the right to wear his military uniform to events honoring the late-Queen Elizabeth II.

The host of “Piers Morgan Uncensored,” who has previously slammed the Duke of Sussex as a “spoiled brat” and a “spineless self-pitying twerp,” took to Twitter on Tuesday to express his support.

“[Prince] Harry should be allowed to wear his military uniform,” Morgan shared with his millions of followers. “He earned it.”

The English broadcaster’s comments came in response to a tweet from CNN’s London correspondent, Max Foster, who shared a quote from a spokesperson for the Duke of Sussex.

“Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex will wear a morning suit throughout events [honoring] his grandmother,” Foster’s tweet read.  “His decade of military service is not determined by the uniform he wears and we respectfully ask that focus remain on the life and legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.”

Morgan’s comments seemed somewhat surprising given some of the statements he’s made about the royal and Meghan Markle, whom he often labels “Princess Pinocchio.”

On Tuesday, the host’s column in the New York Post was titled, “Harry, if you really want to honor your dad, nix your salacious tell-all and rein in your royals-trashing wife.”

In the piece, Morgan first noted Prince Harry’s quote about honoring his father, King Charles III.

“We now honor my father in his new role as King Charles III,” Prince Harry shared in a statement following his grandmother’s death.

He wrote that the duke has been “dishonoring” his father for the past two years.

“Twelve short words, but ones that carry enormous significance coming from the man who has spent the past two years publicly dishonoring his father,” Morgan wrote.

Later, he slammed the duke’s reported “‘tell-all’ book due to be published later this year or early next, in which he [Harry] will reportedly rip into the royals yet again in what Harry says will be a ‘first-hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.'”
